We had a nice Independence Day. Michael, Blair, and family came the night before so they could spend most of the day with us. In the morning we went to a breakfast at Job and Sarah's house, then we had our own celebration with most of Ryan's family joining us for lunch. We went down to watch the parade at 4 pm (everyone had decided to decamp by then for their own homes) and sweltered. It's been so freakishly hot this year. I think the weather has us confused with the south. We melted, and watched probably the shortest, lamest parade in Independence history. It was an especially poor turn-out, so not many people know just how pathetic the parade was. I guess no one wanted to be out in the heat.
Then we watched fireworks.
And finally took our tired selves home to bed.
